Wow, Ron Howard’s Take on Star Wars Is Not What I Expected

I don't know what I expected.

Ron Howard is getting a crack at the Star Wars franchise due to taking over the Han Solo movie from original Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, but it’ll be a while before we get to see how that turns out. In the meantime, we’ll have to make do with the original trilogy remixed with Howard’s Arrested Development narration.

And you know, I’m not sure Howard was really the way to go if Lucasfilm really was concerned that Lord and Miller’s take on Han Solo was coming off too comedic. Adding him to the original trilogy certainly takes the comedy up a notch, although those movies already hit a pretty satisfying balance of comedy and humanity within the sci-fi setting.

Anyway, enjoy a trip back through the original trilogy, courtesy of Nerdist, that’s probably not all that different from how you already remember it after watching it a zillion times, dissecting it, and joking about it with friends both in-person and online.
